Pros

Pay is competitive, tuition reimbursement for Team Leaders, 40 hour work week, opportunities for advancement within company,

Cons

Working weekends, but that is retail. It is required for Team Leaders to work two weekends a month. One opening and one closing. You get two weekends off a month. Required to work one closing night each week. A huge lack hours for the team members puts stress on everyone. Executives need to be a part of the "team" and get their hands dirty!

Advice to Management

People have lives outside of Target. Promote current Team Leaders with the experience and education that is needed to run the business to Executives.

    Pros

    After you finish your minimal training, you at least get to be on your own to take care of your work. Friendly co-workers most of the time, they're always in the same boat as you. You can cross-train in several areas, management actually encourage that you do so. You can set your own schedule, but during holiday periods management tends to ignore that and schedule you for days that the system they use knows you ordered off. Can always get more hours using their shift pick-up system.

    Cons

    Management is not organized. Most of the time you have several different team leads and executives that give you conflicting orders and therefore causes you to back up in what you were working on. Bad hours, especially after the Christmas period. After the cutback of seasonal workers they jack everybody's hours down, and for minimal pay. Mentioned above, the scheduling system is there, but the HR manager is in full control, and you literally have to fight them in order to get it changed. No opportunities for career advancement. Basically a filler job until you can get something better. They do not hire within the store or company at all. Meaning if you are a cashier, you are going to stay a cashier until you leave. Cross training or not. The pay rate is bad. They claim that when you start that your pay rate is competitive against others, but it is only on average about $.50-$.75 above minimum wage. Even if you have a college degree or going to college, they still only pay you bare minimum, and still give you no opportunities for advancement. Cross-training is not all that. You barely get to work in your second (or third) area at all. At most you only get to cover somebody's lunch or break. You are lucky to pick up somebody's shift if they want to give it away.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being dis-organized. Everybody is different, but they keep that thought process throughout their time there, and it causes dis-organization throughout all the workers out on the floor. Another piece of advice would be to honor the employees' cross-training. They put the time into getting trained in those areas, and all you do is allow them to take over somebody's lunch or break.
